1 Corinthians 13:7,8
Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
It happened again…..I blinked and the school year was over!!!!! How is it possible that a whole year has gone by since my little boy started junior high?!?! This time last year, I vowed to enjoy each and every second of grade seven, of last years summer vacation, and I have. It still felt like it flew by as quick as a blink.
I remember how I felt the day he graduated grade 6, it was only a bit harder than watching his kindergarten graduation. I was happy, sad, proud, anxious all at once…..tears threatened at the very thought of him going to junior high. Now, he just finished grade seven. His first year is over and I’m not sure where it went.
It’s funny when we look back on our lives, do we just see blank spots where the years blended together or do we have memories filling the time??? The last year might have flown by, but we made memories.
There was camping….lots of camping where Keagan made great friends who can’t wait to see him this summer. There was the day spent at the Fun Park….cousins and picnics and water slides (doesn’t get much better;)). Then there was baseball or hockey…..each at bat or shot on net….was an experience because no two were ever alike. There were band concerts, and Christmas plays….a little something extra to appreciate the other things in life.
And school, what can I say…..with a twelve year old school will always have happy memories. Like the 100% on math tests. Moments to forget….like the 37% on science tests. There were the endless stories of fun things they did…….and the few (sadly) not so awesome stories of bullies.
We spent the last year making memories……each and every moment I thank Jesus for them. Without him sharing in every moment our family had, it would have been a year of blanks.
I will try to spend the next eight weeks forgetting that grade eight is on the horizon……I will make sure to spend it making new memories, enjoy the new journey our family will partake in this year. And while I’m at it, I will always thank my lord and saviour, Jesus Christ for giving me the blessings I call my family<3
